We’re ranked No. 2 in the nation for our commitment to undergraduate teaching.
A PERSONAL SUCCESS PLAN FOR EVERY STUDENT.
Although we’re home to more than 51,000 students across our six campuses, our academic achievement tools and advanced technology mean we can provide something most universities of our size can’t: a personal success plan for every student. You’ll have the freedom to experience undergraduate life fully with the peace of mind that we’ll never let you lose sight of why you’re here.
There’s a reason we’re the No. 2 most innovative institution in the nation (on the shortlist with MIT and Stanford). We work daily to cement our reputation as an agent of change and an engine for growth, providing you with opportunities to advance that effort. With collaborative spaces and programs like the virtual reality demo lab inside our multimillion-dollar Creative Media Industries Institute (Opens in New Tab), we encourage play, experimentation and creativity.
Our students are enterprising, creative individuals with fresh perspectives, and we champion that. We’re one of few universities to offer a bachelor’s degree in entrepreneurship. With a minor option available, too, you can build business savvy for a career across any major via the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute. Students can also pursue a bachelor’s degree in social entrepreneurship.
On campus, you’ll have access to a number of creative spaces to develop your skills and promote your own ideas. Our E-House Living Learning Community connects industrious students through housing, workshops, competitions, networking and access to technology. And LaunchGSU acts as an incubator for student innovation for startup businesses.

We employ a consistent, evidenced-based strategy based on the following student-centered initiatives:
